DRAMATIC PRODUCTIONS PRESENT ROLEPLAY By Alan Ackbourn
From Ayckbourn’s trilogy ‘Damsels in Distress', Roleplay is a laugh out loud play with dark undertones, a vintage ‘dinner-party from hell’.
A young well-to-do couple, living in a posh docklands apartment, have planned a civilised occasion where they hope to introduce their respective parents and also announce their engagement. The tense situation escalates with the arrival of two unexpected guests, a feisty lap-dancing gangster’s moll and her burly gun-toting minder. What her parents (a bigoted northern stereotype and his dim twittering wife) and his mother (a toy-boy chasing lush) find when they arrive reveals that the bourgeois guests, under their respective veneers, are far more frightening than the gate crashers. Ayckbourn is a master at handling people divided by class, accent, habits and race and here we see each of his characters playing a role to escape reality with hilarious effect.
Directed by Kerry Gardner (Up Pompeii, Further Up Pompeii), produced by Tracy Jane Murrey
Starring and reprising the role off ‘Micky’ originally written especially for him by Alan Ackbourn at Scarborough - Tim Faraday, (Da Vinci’s Demons, Primeval, Snatch, The Ghost, Gangs of New York) and Julia Savill as Arabella Lazenby.
